Turn it very carefully. Wear thick gloves or with a rag bc the gears are pretty sharp. Be very cautious and patient bc they're hard to turn at first, but once its turns it'll want to go fast. If its the vvti gear, it has free play, so turn it until you feel resistance and then turn it enough till you can get it on point.

Just curious do u have a picture of the 10 mm golden plate u are talking about and does it go a certain way? Also is this plate what the crank position sensor uses as a reference? Thanks

go to post #7 and #8

Help, please -- messed up timing belt job - Club Lexus Forums

I believe this is the plate that the OP was referring to. as for the orientation. take note of how it is positioned before removing and then put it back on the same way.

but as for needing to remove this plate before the timing gear - that is exactly what the user in the clublexus didnt do - he left the plate on when pulling the timing gear.

Good reference To add to this, there's an indentation where the plate goes that keeps it from rotating up or down. It should fall in between there when putting it back on. There's no way to screw this up unless you really have no clue what you're doing.

The plate is there to keep the gear/sprocket from coming outwards. The crank position sensor reads the teeth on the gear/sprocket. If any teeth are missing on your gear/sprocket, replace it before proceeding or you'll have to do this job all over again to replace it when your car won't turn on or misfire.

Little tip if you're stuck taking the cam gears of yourself, to get to the seals: use a piece of wood to hold an adjustable wrench. This piece just so happened to be from a jenga set. For the other side, I used a large set of bolt cutters, which were the right length and could hold the wrench.

Pain the in ass, but I got it done solo.

Not bad I use a big pipe wrench to hold the end of the adjustable wrench.
